No Check, No Balance

Who goes to the DMV and thinks: I wish my hospital visits were as efficient as this!

A December article in American Spectator cites Obamaa’s 2003 speech rallying to "take back" the White House, the Senate, and the House before he can push his single-payer health care agenda:

"I happen to be a proponent of a single-payer universal health-care plan," Obama declared in a 2003 to the AFL-CIO. "[W]e may not get there immediately. Because first we have to take back the White House, we have to take back the Senate, we have to take back the House."

During the presidential campaign, Obama refined the statement to mean that he would set up a single-payer system if he were "designing a system from scratch," but said he supported working within the existing system for pragmatic reasons.

Congratulations, Mr. President. You’ve taken it all. The entire government is fillibuster-proof. Or, as someone who believes in a constitutional republic might put it: We have circumvented any semblance of a system based on checks and balances.
